UNLIMITED Data OR Hotspot Allowance / Which one ??? Please !

Hello Community Members...

I have several mobile devices ONE is a 10.1" screen with SIM enabled (Like an iPad lol) so can get net on SIM

Now this is UNLIMITED data

If I played / streamed music on My mobile phone would have to use hotspot which the 10.1" provides RIGHT

But would use My allowance of hotspot

If played music from the "SIM enabled device" and hot spotted the mobile phone for data

Would that be UNLIMITED DATA from the 10.1" BUT keep within My hotspot limit for My mobile phone


Both mobile devices using the hotspot allowance ??

All help VALUED with My current question

This is a tricky question, as one answer doesn't fit all carriers.

Most Carriers that provide Hotspot Coverage do not provide an unlimited plan. This being the case, the reciprocal is also true, when a carrier provides unlimited Data, they usually by default "Disable" the hotspot feature on the phone.

Now that being said, if I am reading your question correctly, you are talking about using "two" different devices. The first would be used solely as a Hotspot to utilize the unlimited network connection and the second would be utilized for phone and other std services.

This can be done, however you would need to use the wireless calling features on that phone and disable the mobile network on the phone you will be connecting to the hotspot. If you do that then it should allow you to be able to do what you are attempting to do. At that point you should only be utilizing the Hotspot connection for all voice and data communication on that phone.
